My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for four years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I joined WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001, I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win six Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association, including five for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. I also began the annual Teddy Bear Clinic for Kids at Blessing Hospital in 1989 and am co-founder (1986) of the annual St. Patrick’s Parade. My favorite music is the blues. The New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and St. Louis Blues are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City. Years later, I am still doing what I love.

Are There Any Pay Phones Left?

I was waiting for the light at 24th and State in Quincy yesterday and looked over at the Shell gas station and remembered that there used to be a pay phone at that location. I am not aware of when that pay phone was removed. And I am also not aware of any other pay phone still in existence in the City of Quincy.

WWII Ended Thanks to Quincy Native Paul Tibbets

This historic anniversary happened on Sunday which explains why there was little or no mention of it. It was August 6, 1945 and the United States was involved with World War Two on two fronts, in Europe and also in the South Pacific.  Supplies were waning with fighting going on in two different parts of the world at the same time. So the decision was made by then President Harry Truman to utilize an atomic bomb for the first time ever.

Jim Wosman is a Man You Should Get to Know!

He's a father, a grandfather, a coach, a groundskeeper and a friend. He's Jim Wosman. If you have ever been to a Quincy Gems game, you undoubtedly have seen him working the field into tip top shape for the game that night. He is there early in the morning cutting grass and late at night working the infield after the game concludes.
